Like a walk through the country side living on a small farm is full of daily surprises, sometimes wonderful and amazing, and other times puzzling and sad. I hope you will walk with me as I live out my dream of living on this tiny farm. You will come to know the dogs, cats, Shetland sheep and chickens that make up this farm and what goes into keeping them happy and healthy. Come and join the journey with me.

Did you really think I'd let a week go by without kitten pictures?? I must say, I am smitten with these kittens. Big time. Except when they scream because they want out of the box, then scream because they want back in the box. I say 'they' but mostly it's him. This little sweet face is a front for a very determined little mind.

So...maybe I'm a little extra smitten with this little black kitten...(Negotiations are in progress with the house kitties....)

Next we have 'Chunky Cheese', aka 'Ears'. I think this little kitten is going to be a big kitty someday. He looks smaller than the rest, but actually weighs more. It's all in his ears I think.

First steps...just earlier in the week they were toddling and bobbling around trying to walk. My sister was unnerved with their they sat sprawled around like a bunch of drunken sailors, with nodding heads. Now only days later they are scampering. Say it ain't so! My babies are growing up. This little calico kitty is reminds me of the old Archie song...Ah Honey.....'pour a little sugar over me'..she is so sweet. Cradle her in your hand and she turns to mush.

Independence could be this kitten's name. Very triumphant to crawl out of the box and find mummy. Even better have her all to himself!

Like the Calico this little Torti gal just goes all soft and mushy when cradled, she loves being loved on. Always one of the first to pop her eyes open and cling to the edge of the box when she hears my voice.

I didn't leave the other little black kitty out on purpose... but I think I accidentally erased the photo. It is in the picture with the calico though. Posed pictures are probably gone by the wayside. I think I took fifty pictures just to get a half dozen that weren't blurry! With their bobbly heads and always in motion bodies, it's going to get harder and harder!

What fun though. Hope you enjoy them too.

Kittens are so hard to get a good pics of!! I am missing havign a cat we gave ours away to a friend because we were worried about the road so close by.. Well there is a stray Absolutely beautiful calico coming up now... Maybe we can tame her and she can return the favor by killing the mice inhabiting were the feed is.. But they are so cute and they do change practically over night.

Everybody's smitten by the face of a kitten - or they should be.

Too pretty, too close.
